Avalanche playoffs

Watch: MacKinnon Speeds Past Vegas Defense for Electrifying Goal



Colorado Avalanche, Vegas Golden Knights

I gotta give that goal by Nathan MacKinnon some singular press here.

MacKinnon’s turbo-fueled burst past some flat-footed Vegas Golden Knights skaters was the highlight-reel Avs goal of the night when there were several of them. The Avs played like a symphony orchestra in those first 40 minutes, outshooting Vegas 27-17 and even being the more physical team.

Ryan Graves, in fact, hit Vegas’ Mattias Janmark in the second period that sent Janmark to the dressing room, not to return.

MacKinnon’s goal was his second of the night and gave the Avs a 6-1 lead. Here’s the goal:

That was a thing of beauty. While I know McDavid is considered the best player in the world, how MacKinnon performs in the playoffs should at least have him in the #2 spot.

I’ve watched him hone in his game the last few years and he really is special. This is a great group of guys and probably the most talented Avalanche club in 20 years, but if they win it all- it will be mainly MacKinnon who makes it happen.
